I know alot of people get intrested in languages through music, so i was wondering if anyone in this group likes Korean music, and what kind. It's ok if it's not only kpop, i actually listen to more music in Korean than just that.
Same here. I grew up with lots of styles of music and different languages (mostly Japanese and Jamaician songs) so liking songs in other languages was natural to me.
I can't remember what my first Korean song was since it was a long time ago, but I started to keep track of the songs I liked with 2ne1. From them I got in to Big Bang,Brown Eyed Girls and a whole bunch of other groups, and now im also into a lot of Korean hip hop like Yoon Mirae, Tiger JK, and Zico (from Block B)
I dont really have alot of ballads, but i do have a few slower songs. Like They are coming by Whesung ft Ailee.
I believe a lot of people in this group are quite interested. My interest in languages generate from the music i listeN to. When i listen to Tatu, a russian group, i taught myself the basics. Same thing with German, Japanese, french and korean. However when it came to learning Korean I found a really liked the language and liked learning it so that's the one language that I stuck with a really long time..
The first Korean song i heard was Because Im a Girl by Kiss on yotube. It was really popular because of the sad video, but i liked the lyrics more. They were sung so well and beautifully and it led me onto other ballads. I know bits and peoces of words and sentances because of songs and the more you listen as you learn, the more you understand. Its pretty fun.
I do have more Kpop than anything on my ipod, but i absolutely love Korean ballads. My current favorite is 달라 by 김 범수 & 김 태연
